STOP! In Ms. Tu’s humanities (aka, “Tumanities”), you clap differently! We clap ASL (American Sign Language) Here’s how we clap: watch Ms. Tu Polite clapping (very quiet) 小聲鼓掌 Modest clapping (normal) 一般音量 Excited clapping (supposedly super loud!) 大! Notice that the room should be SILENT the whole time
Great Job!! Give yourself a round of applause!!

Tumanities’ High Authority Bell! When it rings, you STOP whatever you’re doing and LISTEN , giving your highest possible respect! Let’s practice…..
DO NOT MOVE OR TALK Until you hear the high authority bell 聽到玲聲前保持安靜, 不要動 NOW, let’s all close our eyes… Think SUMMER VACATION… bring yourself back to this ONE moment in the whole entire summer of 2009 that you felt the happiest…
Pair Share: Turn and Talk Your best memory of summer 2009…
More on the Bell’s Authority.. Ms. Tu takes the bell very seriously! So, NO ONE ignores the bell. Ms. Tu will ring the bell one more time (x2) if the class fails to STOP and LISTEN or return to pin drop mode. If Ms. Tu has to ring the bell 3 times in a roll to try to get the class’ attention.. YOU ARE IN TROUBLE!
“In Trouble” means.. Bye bye cool privileges (ie. No manga on Fri.) Canceled class video showings Canceled parties, class trips and other FUN stuff Added homework assignments Added classroom cleaning, etc. Drop in grades! SWS caller ID showing on your parents’ phones A scary humanities teacher in GROUCHY mood
Beware the Power of
Bathroom Rules Bathroom pass Time you can go: Independent working time, unless it’s an emergency, in which case, you let me know. No need to ask: When the pass is available, you come to the front, LOG OUT and go When you come back: Put the pass back, LOG YOURSELF BACK IN
If Bathroom Privilege is Abused, You lose it! You will have to PAY (with extra points or other privileges, etc) to buy your bathroom pass. You will not be able to go freely. Your parents will be notified.
